Over a year ago I was living with an Ethiopian family, relearning how to eat with my hands and discovering/pushing the physical limit to the number of coffees I could consume in a single day (~14). Last week I visited my host fam's town to help out with a training for the new group of PC environment volunteers. Meeting new volunteers charged with good will and adventurous spirits is invigorating and something I can always appreciate.
The photo above is of the mountainous hill of Manaagesha. Locals say it once hosted a piece of Christ's cross and held ceremonies that made kings into kings. It was within Manaagesha's forests that I first stood in awe as monkeys swung overhead.. Amazing that I can yawn when I see them today.
